Out and out 5f horse who doesn't have a great strike rate for one of his ability but this his first go in a 0-90 contest so will relish the drop in class with his Newbury second in April reading well here.

Didn't really go on from Thirsk win on 2018 reappearance. Had wind operation over the winter and ran with some credit at Newmarket so may come on for that.

Better at this minimum trip so no surprise he was left behind at 6f last time in strong contest. Previous run at 5f puts him in the mix and now wears a visor for the first time.

Scored over 6f here early last season but improved when dropped down to the minimum and did do again when winning at Thirsk recently on comeback. 6lb rise well deserved and worth a go in this better contest.

Runner up in this a year ago and won later here. Front runner who showed his customary dash when third at Epsom on latest and should give it a bold go from the front.

Has gone close before at this trip but yet to win at the bare minimum and made all over 6f on Ripon comeback. Bit more needed in better race but merits respect.

Hasn't won on turf since 2015 but finally back in the winners enclosure on the AW recently. That was over 6f so the return to the minimum trip back on grass could leave him vulnerable.

Good effort when chasing home Makanah at Thirsk and cheek pieces may eke out some improvement but long losing dates back to 2016 so they will need to though place claims in an open race.

Betting

Forecast

Makanah (7/2), Blue De Vega (7/2), Duke Of Firenze (9/2), Nibras Again (6/1), Merry Banter (13/2), Venturous (9/1), Bossipop (10/1), Bowson Fred (10/1), Requinto Dawn (16/1), Haddaf (22/1), Soie D'leau (25/1)

Verdict

A strong sprint handicap and few can be safely ruled out. Narrow preference goes to MAKANAH who may have improved over the winter judged on his comeback win at Thirsk. The drop in class should see Blue De Vega play a leading role and along with Merry Banter may chase the selection home.
  1. Makanah
  2. Blue De Vega
  3. Merry Banter
